The Jewish religion and culture is rich with many traditions, ritual practices and celebratory items that directly express the uniqueness of the yearly rituals. One of the many ritual acts of the Jewish religious practice of Havdalah. Havdalah is accompanied by the Spice Besamim or spice box. Inside the Synagogue, the Spice Besamim contains sweet-smelling herbs and spices of cinnamon sticks, cloves and anise, all mixed for passing around during the ceremony. The aroma is a reminder of the sweetness of Shabbat that is to be remembered throughout that week of Havdalah.
